a typical day of cleaning the house from the rubbish that piled up after the busy week past...somehow the conversation went from waxing the kitchen cabinets to my flashlight collection in less then two sentences.

so, under her supervision, I begin to gather up whats on the surface level of paper and books on my desk....the pic does not, however, include the minimags and paklites and an assortment of other lights layed out like a mine field in the house


heres about 1/3 of my collection on dads desk...:ohgeez:

thought it would be interesting to share:grin2:
Im sure to many of you it would be a spouse issue...:candle:

We have over 50ft of closet rods in this house. I use about 6ft. So I don't catch much static about a knife or light or gun here and there. Now the garage is a different issue.......

Be glad you don't have my interest. You'd be screwed after piling up all the lights I have.

I don't think there's enough room on the table to pile up my collection on it.

She buys handbags I buy flashlights no problems here. I have no hidden lights. She occasionally even manages to feign interest in a new light.

Sweet! I don't catch too much flak, but she doesn't ever give a flyin' flip about any of my lights. Contrived or not, it'd be neat if she cared. Of course, her new handbags, jackets, accessories don't always flip my wig either, so I guess we're even.

Sounds like my wife when I got her an E2L for her bag. "Oh this cost to much to stay in my bag." Ok I'll put in my bag. "....im gonna use it" Then one weekend at my parents place, I find here showing it off to my brother in-law :shrug:

Cool. I'm that way with watches -- You can't pull open a desk drawer or storage bin and not find at least three watches. Of course, I *did* just register here, so it's probably only a matter of time before I collect just as many flashlights...

God, there goes the bank account....

That's a lot of closets! I had to count mine and came up with 74'!! That's a lot of closets!! (I use about 6' for myself, too).
